Under the Figleaf-all about figs

Avanti Savoia is pleased to introduce a brand new cookbook celebrating the joy of growing and eating figs. 

In addition to over 130 delicious recipes, the book contains a wealth of educational material about figs including a helpful horticultural guide.  The book’s distinctive photographs are by Charles Brooks Photography. 

The food styling was performed by the team of Linda Ullian Schmid and Avanti Savoia’s own Chef Joseph Lowery.  Linda and Joseph were also responsible for the kitchen testing and editing of all the recipes. 

The book also contains a listing for sources of products which includes products supplied by Avanti Savoia. 

Only 50 copies of Under the Fig Leaf, autographed by the author and the food stylists, are available. Order your copy today!


See Chef Joseph's blog entry for more information about this cookbook, and for some sample fig recipes.
